We mostly think of obelisks sitting on mantels, tables, and desks, but for those wanting to make a real statement with their obelisks, there are some colossal ones!

The designer Michael S. Smith has this wonderful specimen marble obelisk in his own home. What a great way to decorate a corner.
This fabulous lapis obelisk with pietra dura flora and fauna decoration on the plinth, stands guard at the entrance of my den.
